Pressure And Temperature Compensation To Optimize Flow Control

Various external factors can have influence on the measurement accuracy and control stability of mass flow controllers. But what are the most common challenges in pressure and temperature control? And how can you fix these?Real-time pressure- and temperature compensation can be the answer. As a Gas Flow Technology Manager at Bronkhorst, I know that efficiency and yield in a process require a stable gas flow. This gas flow can be measured and controlled by a thermal mass flow controller. In this blog I will explain the challenges you can encounter in pressure and temperature control and share some tips on

How Mass Flow Controller Can Support The Pharmaceutical Industry

Bronkhorst recently had a customer who needed support with the exact dosing of pharmaceutical excipients. This customer was planning a continuous Pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. Batch process manufacturing Traditionally, most human pharmaceuticals are manufactured in a step by step batch process with extensive tests between steps to ensure consistent quality and efficacy of the finished medicine. The manufacture of pharmaceuticals is a highly-regulated process with Government agencies inspecting and approving both the process and the facilities where medicines are manufactured. In 2016 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allowed for the first time in its history a manufacturer to switch

The Role Of Flow Control In Hydrogen Production

Hydrogen has become a hot topic recently. Besides application in the traditional industry, we see more and more applications in the sustainable energy sector. Flow meters play an important role in Hydrogen Production, as reliable and precise flow measurements are essential to the process. For many years now, we have been supplying flow meters to HyGear in Arnhem (NL), which they use in their steam reforming units. Bronkhorst spoke with Ellart de Wit, CTO of HyGear, to find out more about this interesting market, the steam methane reforming units they develop, and the role that our flow meters play in

Humidification of Fuel Cells

Inside the engine of your car, gasoline reacts directly with oxygen from the air to cause combustion which enables your car to drive. This is the conventional way. Chemical energy is converted into useful mechanical energy. An alternative for this is combustion in an indirect way: a more clean and promising manner using a fuel cell. Oxygen and fuel, such as hydrogen, are fed to each side of the fuel cell, to electromagnetically react inside the cell forming water. As a result, electrons flow through an external circuit powering an electric motor. The chemical energy from the fuel is converted
